Help keep Kirkland a 'walkable' City. Adopt a Pedestrian Safety Flag Crosswalk in your neighborhood and ensure there are always orange/yellow "pedflags" available at your adopted crosswalk. The pedflags assists pedestrians in alerting drivers to their presence when crossing the street.
Pedflag volunteers average 0.5 hour per week commitment. You are asked to check on your crosswalk at least once a week, and make a one-year commitment to your assignment.

Requirements: Must complete an online application, 2 references, national background check, and one-hour New Volunteer Orientation. Please note that this volunteer assignment is not that of a school crossing guard. Contact your local school for that.
